Why people blog was one of the blogging survey questions I most wanted to get numbers on. We blog for many reasons, and I was fully aware “Why We Blog” might well be different from, say Darren‘s readership.
Turns out way different to how I imagined. It seems I have very few “make money online” readers. We are split pretty much between “for pleasure” and “for business”.
Why People Blog Detail
|Why do you blog?||Count|
|To promote my own business||299|
|I make money from my blog||60|
|For my employer||40|
|I get paid to blog||34|
So Why Do Bloggers Blog?
I would say in fairness this was a multiple choice question where people could select more than one answer. Most of us will have primary and secondary motivations and it could be that “for pleasure” was many people’s secondary motivation.
How do these results match up with your expectations, or how well do they compare with your own motivations for blogging?
